Strengths Weaknesses

Although he is listed at just six-foot tall, Daniels is a very athletic passer, using his legs to elude pressure and pick up yards on the ground when needed (1,634 career rushing yards). He is a poised and confident player in the huddle, but has streaky timing as a passer and struggles under pressure when forced to accelerate his delivery.

If he wishes to have any future at the next level, Daniels needs to improve his accuracy, specifically the ball placement to his targets with a career completion percentage under 58.0%. He is a long-shot to get drafted at this point, but he has his senior season to show NFL scouts that he can stay healthy and consistent.

Player Overview

When starting quarterback Matt Grothe went down with a torn ACL in 2009, redshirt freshman Daniels stepped in for the Bulls and surprised even the coaching staff with his playmaking ability, leading an upset of Florida State in his first career start.

However, the career of the Tallahassee-native has been marred with injuries and inconsistencies. Daniels earned Big East All-Freshman honors in 2009, but had somewhat of a sophomore slump in 2010 with more interceptions (13) than touchdowns (11) and career lows in both passing and rushing yards.

He started all but one game in 2011 as a junior and set career-bests in passing yards (2,604) and completions (215), but South Florida registered just five wins, the program's lowest total since 2004 when Daniels was a freshman in high school.

03/07/2013 - 2013 South Florida Pro Day: One of the most intriguing players on the field was former quarterback BJ Daniels, who's coming off a broken ankle. He was able to display his skills at QB, but he was also moved to wide receiver and defensive back, proving to NFL Scouts he is extremely versatile. "It truly is a blessing to have a team look at you for various things; I am blessed with the ability to do other things," said Daniels. "Quarterback is what I want to do. I want to give it all and my best and see where the chips fall." - Chris Fischer, WTSP 10 News
